Excerpt Six

Summer came down the stairs and one look at her in the green dress and he forgot all about trying to understand her. “Wow, you look great!”

She blushed and smiled with pleasure. “Look, I can walk in my heels. I’ve been practicing.”

He couldn’t stop staring at her. The green dress hugged her body. It had tiny straps to hold it up and he hoped they stayed put. It was cut a bit lower than what she usually wore. He liked it yet it worried him. Her blond hair was piled on top of her head with little wisps of hair curling down. Her neck looked sexy. Hell, everything about her screamed sexy.

“We could still go and buy that blue one,” he suggested, only half kidding.

“You look very handsome yourself.” From the sparkle in her blue eyes he could tell she meant it.

“We all do,” John said. “Let’s go, I don’t want to miss any of the food.”

Summer laughed and grabbed her wrap, which Holden helped put on. His hands settled on her shoulders and she turned and gazed up at him. There were promises in her expression that he planned to have her keep.
